Song Spotlight - Jana Kramer - Why Ya Wanna


There’s another young lady in our countdown who’s already known for her acting career.  Her name is Jana Kramer, and she is perhaps best known for her role as Alex Dupre on the television series, “One Tree Hill.”  Born in Detroit, Michigan, she is clearly multi-talented, and recently she indicated just how talented she is musically by entering our countdown with her first official country single.

“Why Ya Wanna” is a catchy little tune about a girl who runs into an ex-lover she’s trying to get out of her head, and that meeting has complicated her life even further by bringing to memory the things she liked about him.  She says, “Why ya gotta, why ya wanna make me keep wanting you?”  You may notice the waltz feel of the song right off, and the presence of steel guitar and fiddle leaves no doubt that you’re listening to a country song.  She’s doing pretty well so far her first time out, so how fast and how high will “Why Ya Wanna” climb?  Keep track by tuning in each week to the Country Top 40!
